Last week, cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase hired their new Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Alesia Haas.
Haas joined Coinbase after leaving Oz Management, which is a global asset management firm based in New York City (NYC), where she served as the Chief Financial Officer.
Welcoming Haas, Brian Armstrong, Co-founder & CEO at Coinbase, said, “I’m incredibly excited to have Alesia join Coinbase as our new CFO. She brings deep financial services experience to our growing company. As a fintech company, finance is core to everything that we do. We plan to continue bringing the best and brightest from both finance and technology companies to help create an open financial system for the world.”
Recently, the exchange had acquired Earn.com, after being in talks with it for the last few months.
Apart from Haas, last week the exchange also hired the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Earn.com, Balaji Srinivasan, who would serve as their Chief Technology Officer. On that occasion, Armstrong had said, “In addition to welcoming Balaji, we’re also very pleased to welcome the Earn.com team to Coinbase. Earn allows senders to pay users in cryptocurrency to reply to emails and complete tasks. We’re going to be doubling down on the Earn business within Coinbase, as they have built a paid email product that is arguably one of the earliest practical blockchain applications to achieve meaningful traction.”
